Seven Summum Principles
"The Principles of knowing Creation are seven; those who know these
possess the Magic Key to whose touch all locked doors open to
Creation." -- Summum
The seven Summum Principles upon which the Summum
Philosophy is based are as follows:
I. THE PRINCIPLE OF PSYCHOKINESIS
"SUMMUM is MIND, thought; the universe is a mental creation."
II. THE PRINCIPLE OF CORRESPONDENCE
"As above, so below; as below, so above."
III. THE PRINCIPLE OF VIBRATION
"Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates."
IV. THE PRINCIPLE OF OPPOSITION
"Everything is dual; everything has an opposing point; everything has
its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are
identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes bond; all truths
are but partial truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled."
V. THE PRINCIPLE OF RHYTHM
"Everything flows out and in; everything has its season; all things
rise and fall; the pendulum swing expresses itself in everything; the
measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the
left; rhythm compensates."
VI. THE PRINCIPLE OF CAUSE AND EFFECT
"Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything
happens according to Law; Chance is just a name for Law not recognized;
there are many fields of causation, but nothing escapes the Law of
VII. THE PRINCIPLE OF GENDER
"Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine
principles; Gender manifests on all levels."
